Relaxation Dentistry in Tuscaloosa - David A. Scott, DMD

Dental anxiety is common among people from all walks of life. That’s why David A. Scott, DMD has gone to great lengths to provide a safe, stress-free environment in which to treat his patients. In the calm atmosphere of his Tuscaloosa dental office, you will have a choice of Nitrous Oxide that will help put you at ease.

At our Tuscaloosa dental practice, we offer:

Nitrous Oxide – For those with moderate anxiety, we provide this fast-acting option that dissipates quickly allowing you to drive yourself home after a short waiting period.

Nitrous oxide, sometimes called “laughing gas,” is commonly used here in our office to help make you feel more comfortable during any procedures or cleanings. It is not intended to put you to sleep. You will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions Dr. Scott may have. We will ask you to breathe normally through your nose, and within a few short minutes, you should start to feel the effects of the nitrous oxide. Ultimately, you should feel calm and comfortable. Once the procedure or cleaning is complete, the effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the mask is removed.

During Your Visit

We’ll provide blankets and pillows to help relax you even more. When you are ready and Dr. Scott has checked to make sure you are comfortable, the procedure can begin.

After your treatment is complete, you will feel peaceful and calm. You will be provided with follow-up and aftercare instructions, and will either be allowed to leave immediately or wait comfortably until the effects of the nitrous wear off.

Your Comfort and Peace of Mind Matter

If you suffer from dental fear or anxiety, you are not alone. Don’t allow this to prevent you from regular cleanings and exams that aid in keeping your smile healthy.
